Tavella earns third straight SummerNationals win in X30 Junior
Dylan Tavella has now put himself in really good championship shape heading into Sunday after picking up the win on Saturday in X30 Junior -- his third in a row at this event.
Like Mini Swift, a top-four formed early on and they kept it that way for the majority of the race. Tavella was joined by Tyler Maxson, Trey Brown, and Jak Crawford. Positions swapped but everyone stayed together until Crawford had an engine failure with around 5 laps to go as he ran in second, behind Tavella.
As he slowed, that created a gap for Tavella and allowed Tyler Gonzalez and Matias Zagazeta to close in and attach themselves to the now 5-kart train.
With Tavella 1-second clear at this point, Maxson had worked his way into second, where he would finish. Zagazeta moved all the way up to third in the final lap scrap, displacing Brown to fourth -- who led a few laps himself near the middle of the race.
